The funeral of Barbara Sawatzky, wife of Norbert Sawatzky, took place at the Heritage Funeral Parlor in Wantirna on 13 February. Barbara died on 5 February 2013 with cancer complications.

When I come to the end of the road
and the Sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a sould set free?

Miss me a little, but not for long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared.
Miss me, but let me go!

For this is a journey we all must take
and each must go alone.
It is all part of the Master's plan,
a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
go to the friends we know
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me, but let me go!
